The election of a Palestinian president is totally
irrelevant as to the so-called peace process. For peace to be secured in this
tortured land, the fundamental requirement is for Israel to comply with
international law and terminate completely its illegal occupation of
Palestinian and Syrian land that has been allowed to stand for 37 years in
defiance of international law and repeated Security council resolutions.
Compliance with international law requires no negotiation.
